Episode notes

Protesting against the club's Glazer owners on Sunday, Manchester United fans not only broke into Old Trafford but also forced the postponement of their side's clash with Liverpool. In the broadcast studios and on the back pages their actions seemed to split opinion.

When football and politics meet, is it right that ex-pros are the ones providing the commentary? We discuss the latest fallout from the European Super League and how the Premier League plans to prevent clubs from attempting a future breakaway.

On the pitch, Sergio Aguero and Gareth Bale both flashed a bit of leg at potential suitors with goal-scoring cameos. What next for two of the Premier League's one-time best players?

In Italy, Inter Milan knocked Juve off their perch by sealing a first Scudetto in over a decade. The Old Lady's gamble on Andrea Pirlo hasn't paid off it remains to be seen if he's still in charge next season. If he is, he'll get to pit his wits against Jose Mourinho, who out of the blue has been appointed the new head coach at AS Roma. Will the Eternal City handle the not-so-Special One?

We end part one with a brief look at some handbags in Monaco and pay homage to Emma Hayes after she guided Chelsea Women to the Champions League final.

After the break, we talk lame sporting nicknames, New Zealand Rugby putting the All Black name on the open market and Covid causing the cancellation of the IPL.
